    Here's the deal. Had 2 premium domains I found, loaded in cart. Did a bunch of research on these domains and took a break. Came back and cart was empty because they sign your session out like godaddy. I tried to purchase again and then they say domains are not available. They also say that the domains were renewed a couple weeks ago which I know is BS because I had both domains at $399 and $349 in my cart. What A Frickin Scam! Anyone else see this? Anything we can do about it? Next time, screen shots. i just can't believe these cockroaches.

    I remember when i was searching for cheap domains i used network solutions and i ended paying a lot more for some features i didnt wanted. Only way was to cancel automatic payments via paypal.

    Always go with Namecheap or Internet.bs for finding and purchasing your domains.

    You could try mydomain.com since they have never taken a domain from me that was worth money.

    NetSol are definitely scum, but there's a lesson there - if you find a gem, never let it get away because *for some reason* it will always be gone from most providers if you go back later. If you're domaining, always have a second screen or machine ready to go for research so you can buy immediately. I have learned that lesson the hard way.

    Unregistered domains go for $350 to $400? What are these, new top level domains?

    They were expired domains with significant amounts of authority backlinks. I was astonished that I even found them available. Took me 9 hours of research to find these, so yes, I'm pissed. NS are scam. I had the damn things in my cart with a price. Came back a little later. I just can't believe it. Matter of fact, if you looked up "who is" on Google, NS used to be ranked highly, not anymore. Go figure.

    Here's another part of the back story. I called NS to try and negotiate a better price for both domains. That's when I found out they were "registered 2 weeks ago". Which was BS. I had them in my cart with prices of $399 and $349 marked as premium domains. I can't make this sh-t up.
